Rick Santorum’s SOTU Response: Obama’s A ‘Tyrant’

Most people saw a president Tuesday night asking to work with Congress. Former Senator Rick Santorum saw a “tyrant.” “This attitude is,” Santorum said, “we’ve heard enough from you folks, it’s time to get out, get out of the way. If you don’t get out of the way, I’m going to do it myself. And […]

Political Science Professor John Sides of George Washington University explains the chart put together by political scientist Benjamin Lauderdale of the London School of Economics. This kind of quantitative text analysis does not always work well, but the results here make a lot of sense. Speeches by Democratic presidents (blue) are to the left; speeches by […]

“That’s what the American people wants us to do,” she claims with, as always, no evidence. She doesn’t like that he uses his powers–or that he’s the president.

Even when it’s bad, it’s good, says Alex Castellanos. “I think I’ve said before that I think a speech by Barack Obama is a lot like sex.

I could not bear to watch as he continued […]

The Republican Party is in denial about it’s attitude on women. As I cited on Fox News Wednesday, more than 40% of women are forced to take unpaid leave from their jobs when they get pregnant and 25% are forced out of the workplace. Carlson and other Republicans act like it’s their choice not to […]

Senator Graham didn’t like President Obama promoting diplomacy with Iran, something the president feels is the right course, at least for the time being. According to Graham, we’re on the verge of the apocalypse. “The world is literally about to blow up,” Graham said, saying he completely disagrees with Obama on Iran policy. Obama pledged […]
